Handheld Lab to Enable Faster, Cheaper Point-of-Need Bacterial Infection Identification

Instant, accessible, reliable testing for viruses and bacteria will be soon made possible by the world’s smallest portable bacteria identification lab that uses cloud-based, machine learning algorithms to identify bacterial species in five minutes, without the need for expert users or expensive lab infrastructure.

Gene Signature Identifies Patients with Long-term Lyme Disease

A transcriptomics approach was used to establish a 35-gene signature that could be used to identify individuals with long-term Lyme disease and distinguish them from those with the acute form of Lyme disease and from healthy individuals. More...

Direct Real-Time PCR Protocol Detects Monkeypox Virus

Monkeypox virus, an encapsulated double-stranded DNA virus and member of the Poxviridae family, is responsible for the recent monkeypox outbreak that has been declared a public health emergency of international concern. More...

Gut Microbiome Dysbiosis Linked To COVID-19

Previous reports have demonstrated that severe COVID-19 is frequently associated with specific inflammatory immune phenotypes, lymphopenia, and a generally disproportionate immune response leading to systemic organ failure. More...

Immunoassay, Mini Mass Spec Combined for Malaria Detection

Currently, several different technologies are available for diagnosing malaria, but each has drawbacks. PCR, for instance, is highly sensitive and specific, but it requires upfront sample processing and specialized equipment. While point-of-care and home PCR testing has come to market in recent years, these assays are quite expensive. More...

Parallel Impedance Cytometry Screens Bacterial Cells in Real Time

Antibiotic-resistant infections are responsible for killing over a million people worldwide every year. Central to managing resistant infections is quickly identifying an appropriate treatment to which the infective bacteria are susceptible. Significant time is needed to determine the drug susceptibility profile of a bacterial infection. More...

Immune Regulators Predict Severity of Plasmodium vivax Malaria

Cytokines and chemokines are immune response molecules that display diverse functions, such as inflammation and immune regulation. In Plasmodium vivax infections, the uncontrolled production of these molecules is thought to contribute to pathogenesis and has been proposed as a possible predictor for disease complications. More...
